McCaleb & Company

McCaleb & Company

 

These series of interviews began as a result of a discussion between Dutch Hoggatt, director of the ACU-TV studio, and a local cable provider regarding the possibility of Abilene Christian University producing a 30-minute program per week to be carried on the cable. The early response to the program was positive and the pool for potential interviews expanded beyond the campus and the city of Abilene to include state and national, and occasionally even international guests during visits to Abilene.

The original title of the show was "On-Campus." Hoggatt asked Dr. Gary McCaleb to serve as the host. Early programs included actor Charlton Heston, authors Alex Haley and James Michener, golfer Gary Player, and Charles Passel, who joined an Admiral Byrd exploration.

When McCaleb ran for the office of mayor of Abilene and then served in that position during the 1990s, the program was suspended. It later resumed with the name "McCaleb and Company." On August 2, 2006, he received the Texas Oral History Association's Barnes Award for excellence in community oral history.

Dr. McCaleb completed his ninth year and third term as mayor of the city of Abilene in 1999. He was president of the Texas Municipal League in 1993, and served on the advisory boards of the National League of Cities and the U.S. Conference of Mayors, and was the U.S. representative to the World Executive Committee of the International Union of Local Authorities.

Dr. McCaleb is vice president of Abilene Christian University and executive director of the Center for Building Community. He has been with ACU over 50 years.
